Monterey and Vellum 2.8.9 Now Available

Apple has released Monterey, the newest version of macOS. 

If you upgrade your Mac to Monterey, make sure you’re running the latest version of Vellum (2.8.9). You can do that using Check for Updates.

Vellum 2.8.9 includes fixes for issues with print generation that could occur in Monterey. If you experience any other issues with Monterey, please let us know.

Update 11/5/21: A low-level bug in Monterey can sometimes cause Vellum (and other applications) to crash on Macs with Intel chips. Apple believes they have a fix for this issue, but we don’t have any information for when it will be released. As a result, we do not currently recommend updating to macOS Monterey.

Update 12/14/21: Apple has just released macOS 12.1, which fixes this low-level bug.

Vellum 2.8.4

Vellum 2.8.4 is a minor update that includes these improvements:

  • About the Author now allows longer Amazon Author URLs in print
  • Fixed a problem where the Text Editor would not use all available width
  • Restored missing Ebook-only and Print-only icons in Navigator
  • Addressed an issue with print layout for a coming Big Sur update
  • Improved compatibility for Kobo ebooks on older devices

This release is a free update, available now.

Vellum 1.3.9

Vellum 1.3.9 is now available and includes a revamped Help menu with integrated search of the Vellum Help website:

Vellum 1.3.9 also includes these improvements:

  • You can now disable text justification for Kindle eBooks
  • Paperwhite Preview is much sharper for El Capitan users with retina screens
  • Import does a better job of detecting spelled-out chapter numbers (“Twenty-one”) and now translates Word’s non-breaking hyphen character
  • Links are formatted to avoid double-underlines

  • The Text Editor is again functional when using macOS Sierra Public Beta
